From the Archives: I Made You a Danielson Playlist

Bryan was a ring machine, so it's hard to single out just one match

Bryan Danielson, Daniel Bryan, American Dragon, or Lloyd Boner if you will, had a long and storied career even if it ended up being shorter than he and his fans would have liked. To distill it down into just a few matches feels cheap, especially since he more than any wrestler defined himself in the ring. He was a ring general, an artist, a storyteller; the superlatives are unlimited when describing him in the ring, and so I put together a YouTube playlist of a bunch of matches against various opponents for you to enjoy at your leisure right now. Of course, you can see most of his WWE output on The Network, but I included a couple of those matches as well.
